Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Under the IL law, employment is considered at will, unless you are under a union contract or other written contract for employment that mandates you have to be hired. Absent such a contract, the employer can hire/fire/promote/demote an employee for no reason at all or for any reason at all EXCEPT the age/race/sex/disability/national origin of the employee. So, does discrimination happen in the workplace, yes it does, but all discrimination is not illegal discrimination that can be sued upon only discrimination based only on age/race/sex/disability/national origin is considered illegal discrimination that can be sued upon.
Thus, if you are being discriminated against based on your being with the other airline, that is not illegal discrimination I am afraid, even though it may be discrimination.
